Mint Festival 2014
Steve Thorpe & Herbie Saccani
After DJing at the Hacienda and the Boardwalk Herbie joined Tangled. When Tangled moved to the Phoenix it became a 2 room clubnight so he enlisted Steve Thorpe to help supply the music.
The music in the main room was House and Trance so upstairs had to be diifferent. What Herbie and Steve brought to Tangled was the sound of Breakbeat. Heavily influence by old skool hip-hop, electro, trip hop and big beat, the two of them created the soundtrack to what became Tangled Breaks.
Over the years Breakbeats finest came to grace the decks of the upstairs room at the Phoenix, Superstars such as Hybrid, Rennie Pilgrem, Adam Freeland, Koma & Bones, Shades of Rhythm, Hyper, Rogue Element plus many many more would would all love coming to play such an intimate, down to earth club with such a great atmosphere and crowd.
Tangled Breaks influenced a whole group of clubbers and still does!!! Both Steve and Herbie are highly respected in the scene today. With thousands of tunes bursting out of their boxes you can expect a quality night of pounding electronic bass and breakbeats!
Runner up in the Gemini Freestyle DJ competition 2011 by BPM.

' Yeah we all went out to see Danny Howels @ Rehab then after Glasshouse we all ended up at some student dig's where i was thrown on the decks, The dude who's tunes they were was like.. 'u like breaks?' i was like er.. yeah, but i'd never played it before, and he couldn't get me off the decks for the rest of the night!!!'.
